  • Description


    Hello we are Heidi en Jan and we are living at Dalsvallen Härjedalen.

    We rent out 6 cabins and have nice little tourist shop.

    Dalsvallen is a small settlement situated in the central part of Sweden, nearby one of the oldest nature reservations in Europe – Sonfjällets Nationalpark. Proximity to the ancient forest makes Dalsvallen a particularly attractive place for those who want to enjoy wild animals in their natural habitat and plunge deep down into the pristine nature of the Northern land. Walk or hike for hours and feel at one with the nature around you.
